As I run across books that look interesting, I throw them in my Amazon cart. Two in the cart at present:
Daniel Walker Howe's What Hath God Wrought: The Transformation of America, 1815-1848. The last "big" book covering this period, Sean Wilentz's The Rise of American Democracy, was disappointing. However, this review of Howe's book suggests that it will be far superior.
A series of extraordinary testimonials, such as this one by Todd Zywicki at Volokh, led me to Harold J. Berman's Law and Revolution: The Formation of the Western Legal Tradition.
On the other hand, another item in my cart is the latest killer sheep movie.
